Feeling Your Way to Trust

I studied emotional intelligence, sometimes called EQ or Ei (and we use the terms interchangeably) for over a decade and my work in trust was a result of my deep curiosity on how the two are connected. Why do different people witness the same person doing exactly the same thing and arrive at different conclusions as to their trustworthiness? How can a person who is nasty and lies to others still believe they are trusted? I have learned that there are times when people really aren’t aware of how they are coming across to others. It comes down to emotional intelligence.

Happy Holidays!

I’m sitting in my living room listening to Christmas Carols and looking at our Christmas tree that is decorated with ornaments we’ve collected over the years. I’m feeling nostalgic. I’ve read messages and greetings from friends and recognize that this is a happy time for some and a difficult time for others. My heart is with you all. The very best to you and everyone you love.

With love,

Referrals – What you absolutely need to know!

They received a huge stack of speaker applications but when my friend Paula Morand gave the event organizer a call and gave me a glowing recommendation it made all the difference to the people deciding who to hire. I got the keynote and the opportunity to spread my message of trust to a new audience. Paula knows the organization and is well respected by the people in power. She’s seen me present. She knows what I talk about and her referrals are golden. It’s gone both ways. I’ve referred people to Paula and have called and tipped the scale on the plus side for Paula when a colleague who was vacillating on using her services. I have a great deal of respect for Paula and I know she feels the same.

It got me thinking. What do you absolutely need to know to give a good referral? What must you do to get a referral?

Tolerance and Trustworthiness – Finding the better way!

What if we worked at tolerance? I read a post hiding bigotry and hatred by posing it as a fight against political correctness. It was dishonest and untrustworthy. They posited that not accepting their fight against “political correctness” was a sign of intolerance, weakness and dangerous to society because it hides the “real” problems. They weren’t talking about political correctness, which is meant to stand for fairness and open-mindedness, but the new subverted meaning, which is described as a condescending way of talking and elitist principles that wastes time.
